When the buddies are at the movie theater, 101 Dalmatians is playing. When they go into the projection booth, the movie is at the part where the puppies are just born, near the beginning of the movie. As they walk in front of the projection, it skips to the end where the puppies are trying to escape Cruella. See more »

pre-teen girls loved it
1 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We rented this movie (along with Material Girls) for a group of four 9 & 10 year old girls to watch on New Year's eve. They absolutely LOVED it. Surprising to me, 2 of them commented that they liked it much more than the Material Girl (the Hillary Duff movie - and these girls are the age where most are big Hillary Duff fans), It is corny and there were a few parts I didn't care for. I think the part suggesting that the puppy was drunk from swimming in some wine would have been better left out. (Tell me - wine isn't fermented yet at the point he was swimming in it, is it? I'm thinking it was WAY too early in the wine making process.) I also don't care for gas jokes - but the girls laughed.

I have not seen any other air bud movies (guess there have been several?), so I cannot compare - but it was cute and a reasonable safe bet for the pre-teen set.
